White sand and views of Pebble Beach are wonderful. We hiked on a warm day in May, but when it is cold, it would be windy. Please love strolling along the surf. Plenty of dogs and kids. The water is blue green and cypress trees are beautiful.

Loved watching surfers and a bridal party! It was misty and cool, but well worth going. We loved Carmel and the Valley. So gorgeous!

“Wild beach in the city”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Not for swimming, great for surfing, enjoying the sunset, walking the dog, having a nap in the sand, reading a book, artists haven as we saw many easels set up. Walk to the river and estauary at the end of the ocean drive and hear the frogs sing at twlight.
